I liked this cookie, but I agree it needs a little more flavor. I put a few drops of almond extract in the icing and it "perked" it up. I also think the icing could be made with raspberry jam and would be a little more flavorful.
Tried this cooky over the holidays. I am giving it three stars because it just seemed like it needed something. The cooky was good, but I think the icing needs more flavor. Possibly more apricot jam ?
